SURNAMES: RYAN, BEAMER
I am seeking information on the RYAN family. I have received several leads that point to Jackson County via land records as well as Stark County in the north and/or Clinton/Brown Counties in the South. Also have a census record pointing to Hardin County, but Can't seem to find the missing link. Family history lists the RYAN family as native american indians who were "on the move" making them difficult at best to trace. The family line to date includes the following: James RYAN b. 1821 d. 1907 married to Eve Ann BEAMER b. 1859 d. 1883. They potentially had several children, but can only confirm one to date and that is James Henry RYAN b. 1850 d. 1911 who was married to Nancy Ann POPE and had 2 children: Eldora Bell RYAN and Reuben RYAN. Potential connection to a Meshak RYAN and his children, but not yet confirmed All leads of interest.
